Catastrophe 1914: Europe Goes to War

WWI started because the Emperor of Austria-Hungary was assassinated by a man who may have been part of a Serbian conspiracy, right? A new book shows that this explanation is so basic it’s just wrong.

18 veterans commit suicide each day

That’s the startling opener to Alex Limkin’s column “Flashes of Light,” which is all about staying alive after war.

Limkin, an Iraq War veteran, took a trip with Outward Bound. The wilderness organization leads vets through the backcountry for free. It’s part of an effort to help people cope with post-traumatic stress.

Folks can apply here.

From the Foxhole

Flashes of Light

Staying alive after war

An average of 18 veterans commit suicide each day. The source for this statistic is not some obscure group with an anti-war agenda but an organization that probably knows something about the rate at which veterans are killing themselves—the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Benjamin Colton Barnes
Barnes, an Iraq War veteran, died at age 24 in Mount Rainier National Park.

opinion

Another broken soldier

Would we have known the name Benjamin Colton Barnes if he hadn’t killed someone else before rushing to his own death in Mount Rainier National Park on New Year’s Day? Or would he have been just another young Iraq War veteran on a suicide trajectory?

Columnist Alex Limkin, also a vet, asks this question in his column From the Foxhole.

A veteran commits suicide every 80 minutes, according to a study published in November. It also indicates military suicides have been on the rise since the beginning of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
